Has anyone on here ever been to a memorial for a musicians death? I know there's one held for John in liverpool each year ( http://www.cavernclub.org/news.....e-monument ), and I think I want to go, but I'm a bit worried I'll just get too upset. I mean, I'll get upset regardless of where I am, but at least I won't be seen if I'm at home, not that that really bothers me too much. Just wondered if anyone's ever been to anything similar?

Also I don't know what these vigils are like. If it's going to be really tacky then I'll avoid it.

Sorry to bring this morbid topic up heartheart

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Oh God if I went to a memorial for John or/and George, I'd be a wreck, I'm already gloomy enough on those dates but especially if I went to a George memorial, I'd be a mess :/

15 quid? That all? Gosh.

Do you want to spend a day in Liverpool, Katie? :)

That would be savage :P And at the 15 quid thing, God bless Ryanair! apple01

I'd arrive in Liverpool at 8:30am

Arrive back in Dublin 7:20am on the 9th, I'd be a bit late for school, I'd have to get the train from Dublin but yeah €30 for the two flights, great!

Getting it past Mam is another problem though and the fact that I have to be 16 to fly alone on Ryanair blue-meanie

I'm actually planning to go to London & Liverpool once I have school finished can you wait 'til 2015 Emily? a-hard-days-night-george-10 That'd be great, go mental in Liverpool :D

When you go, even if you go alone, you will not be the only one there who will be upset. It would be easier with a friend, but don't let that prevent you from going. I was only 17 when he passed. Today, I still weep openly on the anniversary of his death. I know I am not the only one who does.

By all means go and take it all in.a-hard-days-night-john-3 John would have wanted you to.

So as to not derail another thread, I'll ask trcanberra this question here. Why did your family move to Australia? I don't think you've told us yet. If so, just point me to the answer. 

They had a whole bunch of reasons, there was a big wave of migration from the UK to Australia at the time in response to the gloomy economy in the 'old country'.  My uncle and his family came here as well, even my grandparents came out for a bit but got homesick and went back.  The government here also subsidised the fares heavily - we only paid 10 quid each for a month on a very nice cruise ship to get here.

A few of the reasons included dad getting a great job offer (which fizzled while we were on the boat), I was a sickly little kid and doctors recommended a change of climate to something warmer (I think I almost matched Ringo for days lost at school - I missed half of my first year in secondary school), my brother was one of those delinquents you read about in Lewisohn and they wanted to get him away from the environment, mum liked the look of koalas, on it goes :)

It's been great overall, though I don't get back to Wales as often as I would like, I quite miss the old place at times - plus I loved the museums and art galleries in London.  Turner is my favourite artist - luckily we just had a great exhibition here from the Tate to celebrate Canberra's centenary.

Sorry, I'm rambling - hope that lot didn't bore people too much.
